It is not just one of the most prominent social features of India; it is at the heart of many of the past and present fissures of the g: land relations. By mapping the trajectories of changing dynamics in land relations in both colonial and postcolonial periods in rural West Bengal, this chapter tries to understand the way the land has been determining the issues of the rural economy in the rural hinterland.
I read the book "Indian Caste System" BY By R.K. Pruthi in order to know the plight of oppressed communities viz Nadars, Ezhavas at the hands of Nambudri Brahmins and Nairs. Swamiji correctly said Reviews: 2. Thus, like caste, class is also a complex phenomenon in Indian society.
It overlaps with caste, occupation, factions and pressure groups. Instead of the classes at the top and at the bottom of the class pyramid, the middle classes and the mixed classes have emerged as crucial phenomena in contemporary India.
On the other hand, those in the lower rungs of the caste society were largely landless, working on the land estates of the ownership farmers. It is understandable that in a vast country like India with diverse agro-climatic conditions there were regional differences in the types of landownership and the tenurial relations.

The phenomenon of caste has probably aroused more controversy than any other aspect of Indian life and thought.
